BANJO by Kaitlyn

How I made my instrument:

        I found a box that had a cover and cut a hole into the cover of the box.  Then I wrapped rubber band around the base of the box.  Next, I made a slit on the side of the cover of the box and put a paint stick through it.  Then I painted the box brown and the stick gold.  Once the paint dried, I put a dowel across the bottom of the box to keep the box sturdy.  Finally, I glued 3 red tooth picks onto the paint stick.

 How my instrument makes a sound:

        I play my instrument by plucking the rubber bands; the rubber bands vibrate and make the sound.
